Attention dog lovers in the Triangle area! Clear your schedule for next Saturday, April 19 and plan a trip to downtown Raleigh for the 15th annual SPCA K9-3K Dog Walk at City Market and Moore Square! SPCA and Raleigh's historic City Market are partnering to host this day-long event (10 am to 5 pm) that spans two city blocks.

This event is a benefit walk to help homeless dogs, and it's a great excuse to get outside for some family-friendly (and dog-friendly) fun! This year's theme is We Are Family! so bring every member of your family for a chance to walk and give homeless pets an opportunity to join their own family. 


City streets will close at 11:00 am for the 1.8 mile dog walk.

Once you've completed the walk, more festivities await! The Family Fun Zone is new this year, and includes a monstrous 20 foot inflatable slide and 418 square foot inflatable obstacle course. At noon country music singer Chuck Wicks will give a live performance, and the rest of the afternoon you will be serenaded by the local popular Raleigh band Shine. In addition, Moore Square and the streets of City Market will be filled with dog-friendly vendors, two SPCA beer gardens, AND food will be at your fingertips from City Market restaurants like Big Eds, Wood'ys, Battistellas and more! 

Feel free to register by calling 919-532-2083 or 919-532-2088, or online at
